After a little spoon licking I knew I needed to put it to good use. First, I tried it out in my mid-morning power pudding.
1/8 cup chia seeds
6/8 cup water
sweetener to taste (I used a teaspoon of honey)
Chia seeds, according to Dr. Weil at www.drweil.com, are higher in omega-3 fatty acids than flaxseeds. They are also full of antioxidants and other goodies like fiber and calcium. I love them because of the fun goo that develops with soaking.
Mexi Mountains for lunch (guac on raw crackers, a little salsa and hot sauce drizzled on top):
I had the counter rocking with my wimpy food processor as I put together a cheesecake crust (almonds, dates, vanilla and salt) and then tried my raw honey and new sunflower lecithin in a cheesecake filling recipe from Delightfully Raw. It had an amazing texture and a rich, decadent flavor.
Can't wait to have one of these lovelies for dessert:
